Stars of the Guitar CD is now available through www.bpo.org! The two CD set on the BPO’s Beau Fleuve label presents seven of the most important and most beloved concertos written for the guitar, in live performances of the finalists in the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition.

As JoAnn says in the liner notes: “The guitar was my first love, the enchanted vessel that transported a seven year old into a lifelong musical journey. So the creation of a competition for classical guitarists- featuring the greatest concertos written for the instrument- was a perfect melding of my Buffalo Philharmonic orchestral world with the disarmingly intimate voice of the classical guitar. Since 2004 extremely gifted guitarists have come to Buffalo from around the world (often on their first visit to the United States) to perform as artists in solo recital and in the final competition with the Philharmonic. Our orchestra has most probably played more concertos with guitarists than any other ensemble, and we are very proud of the extraordinary level of excellence of our guest soloists, and the active support of our community, who has embraced the competition with tremendous enthusiasm.”

Marko Topchii before winning the Budapest International Guitar Competition (Budapesti Nemzetközi Gitárfesztivál):
since childhood I heard a legend that once someone tried to form a perfect orchestra consisting of the best performers in the world. Yet they failed because everyone had such a strong personality that they couldn't agree even on basic things. I wasn't sure about that legend, rather a myth.
Yesterday at the rehearsal with Anima Musicae Kamarazenekar - Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra at the Budapest International Guitar Competition I felt with my back and sides so many personalities that worked for a single musical result and was most impressed by it.
Today we are performing at the big hall of the Franz Liszt Academy( Zeneakadémia) in Budapest, I had a glimpse at this hall and asked myself if there's any chance we'll get to perform in a hall like that. And I was so surprised to know that actually this year we will. Which is both a privilege and responsibility:)
P. S. speaking about concerto competitions, the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition has just published the regulations for the 2018 edition.
This is a great competition to participate in, and the BPO orchestra is a gem for the guitar performers, having so much experience with guitar repertoire and giving me the exact same vibe of personalities striving for the highest musical result.
P.P.S. On this live video Marko Topchii - Heitor Villa-Lobos - Concerto pour guitare et petite orchestre (1951) during the finals of 2nd Budapest International Guitar Competition. Villa-Lobos also was the #winning concerto for his finals in JoAnn Falletta competition with Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra!
